Carseats are one of those things we have to have but don't have to throw away. All it takes is a little time and creativity to see past the buckles and straps to find a new life for a dumpster-destined piece of plastic.
From special newborn carriers to booster seats and everything in between, we've said farewell to more carseats than I care to admit. I only wish I had thought to consider an alternate option to disposal years ago.
Fly to the moon! Have you ever wanted to go to space? Let your imagination take you there! Strap into your "rocket ship" and count down to blastoff! Make it even more fun by building a rocket ship from an old box.
Use it for your next child. If your carseat is less than six years old and has remained accident-free, consider keeping it for another child. Buying or making a new cover is enough to make it "new" again. You'll be the only one who knows!
Repurposing can go a lot further than diverting things from the dump - it's also easy on your wallet!
